    Some men DO want a woman they can control, and they don't want a woman who can think for herself. I think this is one reason why some conservative men seem to be "interested" in young teen girls or want to go "get a woman" from another country because they are under the impression she will be more submissive.

    For your information, I never took a womens' studies class. I find those people unbearable. Just as unbearable as their inverse, shown here.

    That kind of depends on how you define the term, to be honest. An ideological feminist would likely describe what Vesper posted here, for instance, as being "submissive" and "demeaning."

    However, I know from her other posts on the board (unless I am misremembering things, in which case I apologize) that she actually had quite a successful career as a business woman while still having a more "traditional" view on marriage and gender roles.

    I really don't think that notions of traditional "femininity" and "empowerment" need to be mutually exclusive. Modern American culture simply seems to have a vested interest in trying to convince women that they are.

    While I certainly don't think this is true across the board, I do think a case could be made that a lot of women from foreign cultures understand this reality better than some of their American counter-parts.

    I don't see how you would think that. Usually as long as you guys get dinner and sex, you'll shut up. J/K!

    It's more of a compatibility thing. I would think however that many men agree that progressive women are not women you can live with. As for you, from I have seen you're a conservative that supports some liberal social policies. In short, you're a conservative moderate. Not an entirely unexpected mix for women.

    No, to be a kind respectful person you should treat every person you come across with respect and kindness. However, if you go around disrespecting people because "they haven't earned respect yet" there is a good chance people won't like you and the chances of them disrespecting you will be higher. I know this is a hard subject for you, but do try to keep up.

    I would agree with that.
